A great day out at the 2014 Laughton & District Agricultural Society Ploughing Match

Samuel & Son had a great day at the Laughton & District Agricultural Society Ploughing Match held on Wednesday 17th September 2014 at Court Farm, Falmer.

Samuel & Son were delighted to support the Laughton & District Agricultural Society’s 84th season Ploughing Match.

As always it was a great day out, the sun was shining and Court Farm, Falmer provided a wonderful venue with views over the South Downs.  There was an excellent display of ploughing, a well supported Family Section and an educational area, wonderful to see so many school children in attendance for a food and farming learning experience.

We had a busy day on our trade stand, jointly hosted with Knill James Chartered Accountants so thank you to those who came and visited us.
